As London Fashion Week has drawn to an end on Tuesday, this is a perfect chance to look back at the highlights of the week. Following on from New York Fashion Week,a few big seasonal trends are emerging like velvet, cold shoulders, fur and more fur!
London Fashion Week has enlightened us to a variation of Fall 2016 trends, from extreme over sized coats to a new cleavage style.See below the top trends at London Fashion and make sure you check out our New York Fashion Week Trend Report.
The bigger the better when it comes to coats next season! Topshop Unique and Burberry both went with over-sized military-influenced overcoats while Christopher Kane models sported almost fluffy bath mats for trims on their oversize jackets. It might seem outrageous and looks very over the top, but imagine how cosy you’ll be? It will be like walking around in your duvet!!
The cape trend is not going anywhere,it’s only getting more experimental! Be prepared for built-in capes, embroidered details and even some sparkle. Gareth Pugh showcased a classic take in chic camel, while Alexander McQueen gave us something more glamorous with incredible floor-length evening capes. There’s a different style cape to fit everyone.
Everyone loves a bit of sparkle. This season embraces metallic, sequin and glitter in day time clothing. Yes, now we can wear glitter any time we want to! London’s designers seemed obsessed this season with bringing a little shimmer to our daytime wardrobe. Everything from the pretty dresses at Burberry to disco trousers at Felder Felder to a rainbow of coloured sequins at Ashish were strutted down the catwalk.
THE NEW CLEAVAGE
Forget about a plunging V-neckline.The new way to show cleavage is with a deep bar like opening that spans the length from neck to belly button. This has more a classy seductive look, rather than exposing everything it gives an element of integrity.
PALE PINK AND CORNFLOWER BLUE
These two colours of 2016 popped up everywhere. Despite not being traditional Winter colours, Rose Quartz and Serenity popped up on coats and separates and were combined in pretty prints. This bold trend really stood out on the catwalk and is sure to make you turn heads this fall.
